One of the most overlooked but beautiful and interesting areas in Hitchin lies in Purwell. This Sunday, you can be part of a team of volunteers that helps improve it.
The Countryside Management Service is holding a public hedge planting event and will also have an information tent. Go along and join in the fun, while making a physical difference to our town.
